    Internet viewing vs Local Network viewing


      Hi, I am new to this so please be patient...

      I have downloaded and installed the slingbox mobile app for my ipad 2 and work fine, the question that I have is the following:

      When I am on the go, I know that I am using my 3G or my wifi connection (mifi) but when I go back home and I connect, do the slingbox mobile app in my ipad understand that I am on my wireless local network or always keep  streaming over the net using the 3G or my internet connection over my wifi at home using up all my monthly Gb allowance?

      This is very important to know and not explained anywhere in this website.

      Thank you for your prompt reply

          My ipad automatically connects to my home wifi when I get home.  The upper left hand of the ipad screen will indicate the wifi connection when it's there.  Slingplayer is going to use the connection that the ipad determines is the active connection and when your wifi is available and you're connected, that will be the active connection.
